Repurposing used sails and converting the vibrant and sturdy material into reusable, uber cool and sailing-inspired backpacks, the MAFIA brothers turn trash into treasure.

Currently funding the funky looking Mafia Bags on Kickstarter, the San Francisco-based brothers Marcos and Paz Mafia have created an awesome line of sailing-inspired backpacks, bags and accessories crafted from repurposed boat sails. However, you don't need to be a sailing enthusiast to appreciate the stylish and colorful designs because you would have never known they were sails in a past life if the brand didn't highlight it.

So treat yourself to one of these sea-faring aesthetic bags that are functional, durable and super cool. They also make for the perfect bag during the long and wet summer days spent by the beach and frolicking in the water. Stats for Repurposed Sail Backpacks Trending: Older & Buzzing
